    Peace Is Participation (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 23 - Peace Is Participation
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    Among those who passed through the cloud chamber of existence and left a track of inner peace to hover behind them and to guide those who follow, none left a more exquisite trace or lived a more complete life than Rabindranath Tagore. His life is exemplary of a life of inner peace and participation. He mastered and manifested the intricate rhythm of solitude alternating with service in an atmosphere of dynamic harmony. He participated in every sphere, an energetic and active life with a broad sweep of interests that brought him into contact with a world fellowship, a bold life of competence and engagement. Yet his residual vapor unambiguously condenses into peace.

    Peace Is An Ambiance: Rabindranath Tagore (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 22 - Peace Is An Ambiance: Rabindranath Tagore
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    There is a charmed quality to Rabindranath Tagore’s biography that enables us to inhale the fragrance of a life of peace-in- action. Not only the facts, but his atmosphere inspires peace, like the smell of transpiring grass on a summer evening. His history reveals how insight and action are complemented by relationship to an ambiance, producing an infectious feeling tone of dynamic equipoise. The events of his life and his poetry form a bouquet of images that can pervade our own peaceward dreams. As peace seekers, our strongest motivation arises from seeds of our own planting, but we are encouraged onward by the mythic potency of images derived from the lives of those who have absorbed and suffused the atmosphere with peace.

    Individual Identity Within Egolessness (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 21 - Individual Identity Within Egolessness
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    Peaceful living derives from balance in a world of torque. The world shakes, but our gyroscope must remain upright. The student of peace envelops deep habits about how to live intentionally, selectively, naturally, knowledgeably, and harmoniously amidst losses, defeats, and gradual decline. Like an acrobat with eyes fixed on the horizon, peace focuses beyond self. Peaceful people inhabit landscapes where perspective derives from an infinitely distant vanishing point. Peace is transcendence of flux. Mountains erode, continents and oceans slide into one another, stars burn out. Still, men and women find within themselves an unshakeable something-else. Regardless of language, culture, religion, or its absence, inner peace means detachment from anxious narcissistic immediacy and entry into the impersonal. Peace is the simultaneous expansion and contraction of the world beyond measurement.

    Peace Is Humility or Egolessness (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 20 - Peace Is Humility or Egolessness
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    Generally, we experience the details of our week as earth-shattering. To live a life of inner peace, we need to cultivate detachment from those gripping ups and downs on which our well-being appears to depend, because it is the delusion of importance that blinds us to the real panorama. The humility that will help you cultivate inner peace is a continuous falling back down to earth, like the leaves of birch trees spilling down in golden autumn showers.

    The growth of humility, downward, creates an upward expansion of starry sky to contemplate. Traditionally, this attitude of greeting toward the world has been called “egolessness” in the East and “humility” in the West. I want to remove humility from its churchly old lace and make this realization helpful and regular as denim.

    The Gateway to Sympathetic Joy (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 19 - The Gateway to Sympathetic Joy
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    A person who has learned the skill of sorrow paradoxically will be lightened by kinship and communion with all beings, and will spontaneously speak in phrases of emphathy and saliency. Words and sorrow are a couple with a long, strong marriage.

    Regardless of what we believe the meaning of our life to be, we feel peaceful when our sense of concern is directed outside ourselves toward others, not as a substitute for selfcare, but as an extension of it. Sorrow is what enables pity, dread, or condescension to become compassion. This is one of the deepest ironies of human nature, that our sorrow also contains a leavening celebration.
